First of all, even we test each new version before the release, it is highly recommended to take a back-up of your site using Akeeba Backup for WordPress
plugin before upgrading MiwoWidgets.
If a new version is released you’ll see a warning message saying :” There is a new version of MiwoWidgets available for download, please update now!”.
If this warning message did not come up, then please click again on the "Check again" button found in "WordPress Updates
Thanks to this feature, you don't need anymore to download the new version and upload it to the Upgrade page each time you want to upgrade. MiwoWidgets will automatically download the new version and do the upgrade procedure itself.
Firstly you should download the latest version from our site (always the latest version is there) then login the administrator area of your website. Follow these instructions:
- Go to Plugins => Installed Plugins, deactivate MiwoWidgets plugin.
- Backup possible 'hacked' config-files etc.
- Upload the new files to the corresponding folder in my "wp-content/plugins" folder.
- Reactivate the plugin.
Do not worry about the database tables, they won't be deleted.
That’s it, MiwoWidgets will be upgraded. Now you're using the latest version of MiwoWidgets and the warning message in red will be gone.
Note 1 : If you recieve any red message after uprading it means that MiwoVideos is not upgraded. You should apply what the red message is saying, generally file or folder not writable.
Note 2 : There is no seperate file for Manual Upgrade, the installation file is also available for upgrade.
Note 3 : Nothing will be lost from your settings, data, items etc.
